Hi guys,

After months of work we're pleased to present you our 2nd remote control app for Kodi media center: The Remote for Kodi. Go on and give it a try Smile

* browse you media with lightning speed
* search your media using Spotlight search
* play YouTube movies using the built-in view or by URL from clipboard
* effectively browse, search & filter your collection
* enjoy one of the many built-in remote control commands or create your own

Looks like a nice remote. Two things I noticed:

- EPG view does not take over the channel numbers which are in Kodi/TVHeadend. Channels are mixed up and given numbers starting somewhere in 600's
- No Radio tag supported in the PVR part. Could you please add this? Maybe a separate category for Radio, apart from Live TV?

@stryjek4 Do you have plans to craft an iPhone version?
I don't have my ipad just yet and kinda want to try it out ?.

@Brice yes we do, however - as with the Constellation - we have to carefully plan the layout to use whole screen and not to be bloated with content
@McYoshi thanks for the feedback, definitely will be fixed.

I'd like to update you with fresh new features we've just added in version 1.3:
* Widgets for controlling the Kodi without even needing to unlock the iDevice (premium feature)
** Now Playing Widget - shows what is currently played on the KODI
** Remote Control Widget
* Grid views for Movies, TV Shows and Music
* Banner view for TV Shows
* Performance drastically improved within the app
* Long-press gestures for super-quick actions (play media directly from the Grid View)
* Bug fixes
* GUI improvements
* Extended HTTP POST actions interface - you can now create your own custom buttons (premium feature)

Thanks for the work: this is by far the best Kodi remote to date.

It seems that one (for me important) feature is non-functional. The volume increment / decrement buttons and volume rockers of the iPad do not seem to work. In Constellation, this enables me to change the volume of the receiver through CEC. Is this a bug?

Could you elaborate more on this? Can I add calls to custom endpoints?

Yes, you can send POST/GET request to any endpoints. THE Remote supports json/x-www-form/text-plain body.

Can you please add iPhone support to The Remote?

Also currently I can't get the spotlight search function to work anymore on iOS 10

Hi @stryjek4 I finally decided to make the in-app purchase for your app because I especially love the amount of features crammed into this app, I also very much like the ios 9 spotlight search and I wish more apps had the functionality.

Please make The Remote for Kodi a universal binary app and add iPhone support so that I can use spotlight search to find movies using my iPhone as well. This would be amazing.

I hope you can continue to keep the app updated for iOS 10 which I am currently using and add more features. Do you have a testflight beta currently that I can try out new features and provide feedback before they come out?

Thanks

Shawn
